Right: i.e., you're running a new application with an old DLL.
I just went back and read this inexplicably long thread and see that,
also inexplicably, no one asked for cygcheck output as requested by
http://cygwin.com/problems.html . It's likely that this would have
been detected many messages ago if you'd provided that.
If I missed this in my archive spelunking then I apologize. Otherwise,
I think there's a lesson here for us all.
